Watching Taylor Burton in action, you would never know she's been battling cancer.
She's 15 years old and was diagnosed with leukemia about two years ago.
"When I first found out, it was like a depressing feeling, like the world was coming to an end," Burton said.
She's in remission now and has a wonderful spirit.
"I feel like every kid should be out, their friends running around, doing sports, having fun with their family," Taylor says.
She's so optimistic, she even counsels other children who have cancer.
"Nothing should be a dull moment in a child's life," Taylor said.
She hopes to be a model someday.
"I was always taller than everyone and everyone always said I was beautiful," Taylor said.
Taylor is taking part in the Pediatric Cancer Foundation's "Fashion Funds the Cure" event later this month.
"She has a lot of spark and a smile that you will never forget," said Nancy Crane, with the Pediatric Cancer Foundation. "She is an incredible young woman with great aspirations -- number one, getting back to a normal life."
The foundation helps kids like Taylor achieve their goals and stay upbeat.
"It shows you that you only have a short time to live, that you should take every day as your last," Taylor said.
Pediatric Cancer Foundation has an event on February 22nd: "Fashion Funds the Cure."
